This could be the most silly question, but is there such a thing as Guinea Pig Grooming? One of our lovely girls is long haired and although we bath her and gently brush her, she is looking a bit scruffy and I wondered whether you ever take Guinea pigs to have a trim! He hair is flopping in front of her face and it quite long althe way around.
Thanks and sorry if this is daft, it's just an idea!
We had Hermione, a long haired sow before the boys. We had to trim her fur or she would get a bit messy and tangled and the fur near her bottom got a bit smelly. We used to put her on the table and trim around where her fur met the table. Had to wrap her in a tea towel to do hr bum and you would have thought we were murdering her from the squeals!! If they are board watch you don 't snip their boy bits!
I accidently bought a Peruvian sow (Marmite) when I was 22 (I say accidently- I bought the guinea but didn't know she was Peruvian until she grew her fur)
I got her used to washing and combing as a piglet, but kept her fur floor length, more for her comfort really. Though she was a stunning looking beast, jet black, I had no desires to breed or show her.
Hair over the faces doesn't bother them, but I'd keep the fur round the bottom trimmed (thinking of wee/pooh stains and the risk of the dreaded flystrike)
